Wouldn't that be amazing?

From everything we've all heard/read via interviews, the design choices were all consciously made in order to create differentiators from the vintage brethren and play to modern tastes -- so I feel like there's a 100% chance they already had smaller-bezeled prototypes that match this Photoshop-tweaked version. Safe to assume they just chose not to go down that route.

Glad the Photoshopped helped spur discussion. It was fun to see the real vs. hypothetical mock-up side by side.

If they fix that bezel, I'll be buying one ASAP. Still might buy one if they don't fix it. lol

: Wow - please send it immediately to TAG Heuer now, it's perfect. Do
: include a request for a full metal caseback as well please :-).
: Cheers,
